From time to time, the WCCWG ("WCCWG") may decide to link to web sites that it determines may be of interest to visitors to WCCWG's web site (the Site).  These web sites may offer educational, governmental or other resources or may be owned or controlled by advertisers, sponsors, licensees, customers, consultants or other third parties. 

WCCWG is not responsible for the contents of any linked site, any link (s) contained in any linked site, or any changes or updates to the information contained in such sites.  WCCWG provides links to third party sites only as a convenience and the inclusion of any such link on the Site does not imply WCCWG's endorsement of either the site, the organization operating such site, or any products or services of that organization. 

A visit to any site or page from WCCWG's web site via any such link is done entirely at your own risk.  We strongly recommend reading the Standard Terms and Conditions, Privacy Policy, Disclaimers or other notifications that may be found on any such third party web sites.  Under no circumstances will WCCWG be held responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any loss or damage that is caused or alleged to have been caused in connection with the use of, or reliance on, any content, goods or services available on any other site.

Should any link on WCCWG's web site or any linked web site be found objectionable for any reason, a request that the link be removed from WCCWG's web site should be sent to thoffmannAThoffmannsDOTcom.  WCCWG will consider all such requests but shall have no obligation to remove any links or respond.

Please include your name, your organization name, contact information (such as a phone number and/or e-mail address) as well as the URL of your site and a list of any URLs from which WCCWG may link to. All requests will be decided on a case-by-case basis in the sole discretion of WCCWG and all decisions shall be final.  WCCWG will use reasonable efforts to contact you upon deciding to link to your web site, but failure to do so will not result in any liability or other obligation to you.  WCCWG has no obligation to notify you of any negative decision.  It is generally the policy of WCCWG to give preference to link to educational and governmental resource materials.
